yeah, putting _a_ switch in wouldn't be a big deal, but I don't know how big a deal it'd be to make the eclipse built-in switch work. since the light's on a timer, it isn't much of a big deal.
as for a second fixture. I definitely thought about getting the 2x13 from ahsupply, and apparently it (barely) fits inside this hood..but i wasn't sure I was ready for 26 watts over a 6 gallon tank. As it stands right now, the light fixture is more or less over the big piece of driftwood, so even if there's less light over there, it isn't such a big deal.
my biggest problem w/ this tank, aside from a little algae, is SNAILS. some plant or plants I brought in introduced a HUGE snail population to this little tank..and every snail eating fish I read about is either nasty (dwarf puffers) toward community fish or gets really big (most loaches).
Can anyone recommend a fish for a nano/pico tank that'll scarf up all of these snails?
